Burnhead Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #10 of 14 Haltwhistle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 December 2012

My wife and I spent two nights at Burnhead B&B in January 2012. It was an ideal spot for us to do a little hike along Hadrian's Wall and visit the 'Robin Hood' tree in Sycamore Gap.

The hospitality shown by owners David and Christine was simply wonderful. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and they were always accomodating and friendly. We were especially impressed when Christine picked us up from the local train station at night and in the middle of a wild storm. And David even dropped us off on our day of our departure.

The venue is lovely and with a 'homely' atmosphere. The tea and cake upon arrival was an excellent touch.

We can't fault our stay in any way. If you are visting, we recommend you stay at Burnhead B&B.

After 15 miles (24km) November walking through wind, rain (at my back fortunately) and mud it was a great joy to be welcomed by Christine at 3pm with tea and cake. Plastic trays and newspaper were ready for my muddy boots and gaiters. The house is beautifully decorated and the smallish twin en-suite bedroom with TV/video was more than adequate for a one night stopover. An excellent 7am breakfast was happily provided to fit in with my needs. What a gem for walkers in this reasonably remote location.

Room Tip: Book early - only two rooms.

Burnhead B & B was our second night stop along Hadrian's Wall. It is conveniently located right next to the Wall. David and Christine were great hosts. Christine picked us up from the Wall and brought us to to the B&B and she dropped us off at a pub that evening. She even helped to tape to tape up our sore feet. Lovely home and hosts.

Myself and 2 friends stayed at Burnhead as a overnight stop during an Ultra Marathon event and are so glad we did, nothing was too much trouble. David picked us all up from the midway point, even going back a couple of hours later for our third team member as she was finishing later. The rooms where warm, clean and comfortable with everything you could need, including home made cakes. We had a lovely meal at the local pub and a very restful nights sleep and as we needed to be out again for 8am to start the second day, David and Christine where still happy to get up early and make sure we had a full breakfast before driving us back to the midway point. Couldn't recommend this place enough, the location is truly stunning, hope to return one day when we have more time to explore

We enjoyed a weekend at Burnhead . On arrival, David and Christine there to welcome us and even helped with our luggage. Welcomed with cake and a most welcome "brew". Slept very well, beautiful room, warm with en-suite bathroom, every amenity you could wish for. Awoke feeling very refreshed, stoked up on a hearty homecooked breakfast....If you've never had "Billy Bell's" sausages, you've never lived. Set off on a good circular walk to Walltown in the face of a howling wind. But the knowledge of the return to a warm room and a hot shower more than made up for it. A pleasant evening in the Milecastle Inn and another undisturbed and restful sleep. An excellent breakfast again and packed and ready to return home, having had a splendid mini break. I would have no hesitation in recommending Burnhead to anyone, nothing is too much trouble and it is a home from home.

A lovely B&B, right on Hadrians Wall, with friendly and accommodating hosts. Good value for money. We have been using this B&B as a base for walking sections of the wall on and off for around 6 years and we have always been very made very welcome. A lovely part of the country to visit - there's something for everyone.

We booked into this B&B having checked the location, which looked perfect for our Hadrian's Wall Walk. We had walked 28km that day, so were tired and looking forward to a hot bath and rest. We were shown to our room having been rather ticked off about our arrival time (early evening). The room was quite small and not very comfortable, with a tiny bathroom. In the morning the land lady shouted at us several times to leave, which was unnecessary and rude. It was blowing a gale and absolutely lashing with rain as we stepped out onto the path and it would have been nice if the landlady had offered us shelter for a few minutes while the storm passed instead of tutting loudly as we shut the door!
